And we’re loving it. Also: KILLA clothes. She looks amazing in that Bottega Veneta dress, even if it does look like they slapped a couple of men’s gloves on her.

    The clothes are fab, but the cover photo makes me think chic zombie apocalypse. 

    • ccinnc

      Addicted to Love + Kristen Stewart are fighting in my head.

      • Tess Danesi

        I was absolutely seeing Kristen Stewart here. I think she may have worn the Balenciaga. 

        • Jennifer C. Cash

          you finally get her out of Dior she can work a more varied/interesting/hard

        • AudreysMom

           This is what the kiss asses at Vogue were telling KStew she looked like in her layout in Paris. Hah! So out of her league. 

        • Patricia J. Dubois

          Just wish she’d pull her shoulders back once in

    • littlemac8

      OR vampira; however, this is way too chic for Bon Temps!

    • duneboi32

      She looks like a dark-haired Lena Olin in that pix

    • ChaquitaPhilly

      and that’s bad…?
      Ooooo…Zombie Apocalypse!

  • Charlotte

    She’s such a stunningly gorgeous woman.

  • RebeccaKW

    These are fierce, but I hate that Balenciaga.

    • pugluv

      But that Balenciaga looks better than the similar combo that KStew wore to the Met Gala…but I agree it is pretty wretched

      • MilaXX

         Agreed. KStew’s version was styled much too casually.

  • EveEve

    The black and white Thakoon photo is a classic.  Just wish she’d pull her shoulders back once in awhile.

  • crash1212

    Fierce. And I want that red coat….NOW.

  • TheOriginalLulu

    She looks gorgeous. Love the bold lip.
    J’adore the Thakoon dress and the Bottega Veneta with the gloves and the shrug.

  • Deac82

    When you finally get her out of Dior she can work a more varied/interesting/hard look.

  • Lina_bee

    I love the Thakoon!

  • Mrs

    Wow wow wow those Bottega Venetta dresses are wonderful.

  • MilaXX

    I think that first pic is the look Emma Stone was trying (unsuccessfully) to give. Love all of these looks and especially appreciate someone who can give more than one face in an editorial.

  • kimmeister

    She is completely unrecognizable here, except for in the black and white photo.

  • Kiltdntiltd

    Kah Ruhm Bah!

  • Stefanos Mantyla

    Is the cover supposed to look pixelated like that? Especially in the hairline and the arms? I refreshed my browser to make sure the pictured loaded and settled properly.

    Other than that, great editorial. Lovely clothes.

  • Dixie Murphy Ross

    Ew, the first couple look like Kristen Stewart. The last two are amazing. The clothes are awesome throughout.

  • Jessi03

    She looks AMAZING!

  • Le_Sigh

    WANT THOSE GLOVES.  And am now thinking of getting a blood-plum lip myself.  

  • Martha Jackson Deutsch

    don’t much care for the hair and makeup, but she is beautiful and sexy nonetheless. 

  • AuntieAnonny

    The photography is pretty “meh” but those are some amazing dresses. The Thakoon one photographs especially well.

  • Gus Casals

    Look at the Model in the Balenciaga and look at Marion… she’s working the shit out of that dress in ways the pro doesn’t even begin to grasp.

    • littlemac8

      I love the top line of the bodice – I keep thinking CATWOMAN and I want to draw whiskers on her chest!

  • mjude


  •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty


    I need that black dress/red coat combo so badly it hurts.

  • Saucysusan

    I love the contrast of pale skin with the dark lip color. Very dramatic & suits the dresses so well. Love the Jil Sander coat.

  • kelsita421

    love her, think she’s beautiful, but really not diggin’ the hair.

  • nannypoo

    I love what she’s doing for these clothes, but I think she’s even more beautiful when she’s photographed with her own, softer, styling.

  • Pamela

    The Thakoon looks like an antique chair I have.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    She has such an incredible face. Love her in the Thakoon.

  • vanjar

    The Jil Sander collection is amazing, with super gorgeous coats. If I had serious money, I would buy the whole collection. The Thakoon dress Marion is wearing looks interesting, would love to see the whole dress.

  • Alyssa Ball

    She looks like the girl from Grey’s Anatomy in the first picture. I had to do a double take to make sure it was definitely Marion. Not sure I love it.

  • marilyn

    The Balenciaga is just an ugly dress.  A Mondo creation on a bad day.  Nothing attractive, artistic or interesting about it.  Just 3 different fabrics slapped together.

  • CynthiaNOLA

    She looks better than the models in every single garment.

    • Shawn EH

      She’s about even with the Bottega Veneta girl, because they both did the sepulchral wine lip. I don’t get that Thakoon dress; who wants their torso to look like a caned chair?

    • NurseEllen

      Maybe it’s because she’s not stick thin?  For the most part I think clothes are worn better by someone with a more human frame to hang them on.  (Bad sentence composition but you get the idea.)  Agree she does a great job.

  • golspie

    Beautifully done – she wears the threads as well as a professional model.

  • foodycatAlicia

    Thakoon gets props for designing a cafe chair? BUT I love that the pic isn’t photoshopped to hell and gone.

  • Clueless_Jock

    Wow I didn’t realize that WSJ covered fashion.

  • Victoria Pavlova

    OUCH. She’s UNDEAD on the cover. 

  • MandyJane

    Love that Thakoon dress. 

  • Pants_are_a_must

    That’s it, we’re all doomed to wear super dark lipstick and look ridiculous this fall. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Marion Cotillard, and she is OOZING attitude in here, but even on her it’s slightly ridiculous.

  • NurseEllen

    Every one of these is a stunner.  She is really working every shot, and that Thakoon ensemble is a stunner.  Wish I could see more of the bracelet.  Gloves………might they come back?  What fun if they did!

  • Shawn EH

    Is that the same Gucci that Emma Stone wore to the Spider-Man premiere. I like it!

  • MajorBedhead

    What is it with women posing or being posed with the rolled or hunched shoulders? It’s not flattering at all. She looks like she got caught in the middle of doing the Chicken Dance in that Balenciaga dress. 

    • Esz

       I call that the “model crunch”  😉

  • loverungay

    She looks better than the models in every piece.  I do agree that those gloves look like they’re from menswear.

  • guest2visits

    Yes, that BV dress with the tattery boa is gorgeous on both Marion and the model. She’s beautiful in everything here.
    The Balenciaga dress is kind of hideous, but she makes it look good in this pic.
    (I think I love that Jil Sander shoe)

  • Sierra Delta

    She certainly owns the camera!

    Why does Gucci want us to love fungus dresses this year?

  • formerlyAnon

    Having little opportunity in my life to wear such dramatic dresses, my lust fixed on that red coat.

    Back on point, I LOVE the photo of her smiling. On some of the others her expression is so generic I find myself evaluating the makeup rather than her overall face. No chance of that on this one.

  • Fatima Siddique

    Is this for Batman? Does this mean the Tom Hardy guyditorials are on the way?

    • Esz

       I really really hope so. He’s so damn hot!

  • Mary Stone

    This is a first.  ALL of the looks look better on Mlle. Cotillard than on the models in the runway show(s).  Love it.

  • unpious

    Now that is the shot of fabulous I needed after a long day of drudgery. I will say though, I saw the first picture before the title/intro text really registered with my brain, and I thought “Oh no, Julianna Margulies, why did you cut off your hair??” But then literacy kicked back in and all was right with the world.

  • Pop Tarts Jen

    The one where she’s smiling! Oh man, she’s just so gorgeous! I love all of the photos, but that’s my favorite!

  • kikisayshi

    I am loving that Balenciaga ensemble on her!

  • quiltrx

    Is she wearing her hair like this now, or is this just for the editorial?  Because I kind of love it…has a certain Annie Lennox fierceness.

    And I kind of love that ‘rattan’ dress.

  • gabbilevy

    This look isn’t normally in Marion’s wheelhouse, but she’s knocking it out of the park (apologies for the mixed metaphors!). Take notes, Kristen Stewart. I think the Thakoon is my favorite.

  • Esz

    That dark lipstick looks fab on her! I love the third look with the leather gloves and clutch. Fierce as hell!

  • l3icest3r

    Love the Bottega Venetas. Maybe one of them will show up on the red carpet this fall. 

  • RzYoung

    That red coat is heaven!

  • greyhoundgirl

    And what a face it is!  

  • bluefish

    She looks god-awful in most all of these.  LOVE the red Jill S. car coat.  Gorgeous.

  • ccm800

    French beauty, you’re doing it right.
